inevitable, that america was always destined to succeed. but when the union was turned back at bull run and the allies first landed at omaha beach, victory was very much in doubt. when the market crashed on black tuesday and civil rights marchers were beaten on bloody sunday, the future was anything but certain. these were the times that tested the courage of our convictions and the strength of our union. and despite all our divisions and disagreements, our hesitations and our fears, america prevailed because we chose to move forward as one nation, as one people. again, we are tested. and again, we must answer history's call. one year ago, i took office amid two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt. experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act, we might face a second depression. so we acted. immediately and aggressively. and one year later, the worst of the storm has passed. but the devastation remains. 1 in 10 americans still cannot find work. many businesses have shutt

i don't think american elections should be bankrolled by america's most powerful interests. or works by foreign entities. they should be decided by the american people. i would urge democrats and republicans to pass a bill that helps correct it some of these problems. i'm also calling on congress to continue down the path of earmark reform. democrats and republicans. democrats and republicans. you trim some of the spending. you embraced some meaningful change. restoring the public trust demands more. for example, some members of congress post some earmark requests online. tonight i'm calling on congress to publish all earmark requests on a single website before there is a vote so the american people can see how their money is being spent. of course, none of these reforms will even happen if we don't also reform how we work with one another. now, i'm not naive. i never thought that the mere fact of my election would usher in peace and harmony and some post partisan era. i knew both parties that fed divisions deeply entrenched. open some issues, there are simply philosophical dif
